Wine Review: This entry level dark red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon is very good. It opens with a mild plum, rhubarb and mild wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a gentle plum and black cherry blend with hints if cedar and cinnamon. The finish is dry and its gentle refined mild tannins fade away nicely. This Pinot would pair well with a pork tenderloin with plum chutney. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A brambly nose of black currents, tart cherries, and violets is met with spicy cardamom and cinnamon. A core of juicy red cherry, cocoa nibs and leather on the palate is complemented by fine tannins evocative of dried leaves, pipe tobacco and anise.
